Multicolor pastel HM X Cambodian HM

This will be my 2nd spawning attempt. I'm using the same set-up except this time I'm using IAL extract and some Java Moss in the spawning tank.I started conditioning today. I will be conditioning for 3-7 days since the female was being conditioned for a different spawning attempt with a different male so she has a head start.

Here are my breeders.

Sire:
Cyril
Age:3 months
Comes from a multicolor/ MG line.He is a F6 generation.Sibling brother won Best in Show yesterday. He has excellent fins,form,and symmetry.



Dam:
Cerise
Age: 4.5 months
Comes from a cambodian butterfly/tricolor line. I believe she carries the DT gene. She has great fins and is a 8 ray female.
Name:  CIMG4623.jpg
Views: 372
Size:  38.3 KB

My goals for this spawn would be to get a high rate of HM fry. Cyril is a 10+ ray male while Cerise is a 8 ray female. That should give me a higher percentage of HMs in this spawn. I would also like have fry with an excellent form and symmetry like the male. For color I should expect a mixture of various different colors and patterns since the sire comes from a strong line of multicolors. However I'm going to try to focus on finnage first and then color.

I also just found out from the breeder of the male that he carries the marble gene. So now I'm REALLY excited as to what will turn out for color in this spawn.

Oh yeah BTW I forgot to mention who the breeders of these lovely fish were.

The male was bred by Karen MacAuley (Martinismommy on Aquabid) and the female was bred by Victoria Stark ( Bettysplendens.com).

Great pair!
Best of luck with the spawn. I cannot wait to see how they turn out.
I'm sure you'll get a huge variety in your fry, so cool!
I'm so excited to breed one of my pairs from Martinsmommy but they are way too little right now.
One of my males is same age as yours but the male and females I REALLY want to breed are 11 weeks old so I have to wait a little

I know I can't wait to see what the fry look like either haha.
They should be a rainbow of colors, marbles,butterflies,maybe some DBT lol I really can't wait.

And good luck with your spawn when they're ready to breed.
